Team TODAY donned neon jogging suits to demonstrate a deceptively tricky Olympic event: racewalking.
John Nunn and Maria Michta, members of the Team USA racewalking team, coached Savannah, Matt, Al, Natalie, Meredith and Ryan on the quirky sport, where one foot must always be in contact with the ground.
Cue the starting gun: The anchors were ready to race(walk).
And... things got awkward quickly.
We're no experts, but attacking a competitor seems like it would be against the rules.
And when Savannah, Meredith and Natalie paused to pose for a photo, Al breezed by to win the gilded sneaker.
Good thing Al's crown matches his outfit!
